Does not hold 2nd place in Bali in terms of flavor, ribs were average nothing special, does not beat legendary Tony Ribs restaurant (not in Bali)

Had a late lunch at Chef Bagus and the food did not disappoint. The service was very good and so are the food whoch somehow tasted homey for me even though im not from Indonesia. Pork ribs very nice! Pork in soy sauce is great too. The tapas that came with the mains were great too!

Amazing Pork Ribs!
Warung Chef Bagus is located in Kuta, about a 20 minute walk from the Beachwalk mall. We booked for 11 the first time we went and for 7 the second time (the latter was at short notice and they still kindly managed to fit us in). The staff brought us complimentary prawn crackers with some chilli sambal while we looked at the menu and ordered drinks. It was a slight shame they only brought us the beer when the fresh fruit juices were ready as the juices naturally took a while to prepare and the beer wasn't as cold by then. I ordered the 250g pork ribs with chicken satay and fried rice set. The ribs were out of this world! They were covered with a sweet and (slightly) spicy glaze and the pork meat fell beautifully off the bone. They had an amazing smoky taste and were probably the best ribs I've had (and I've tried quite a few before!). The chicken satay was also very good - tender and smoky, and also with a sweet and slightly spicy glaze. The fried rice was also tasty. I highly recommend this place. If you are nearby definitely go and seek out Chef Bagus and try his ribs and satay! The second time we went the meat on the ribs was slightly drier and didn't fall off the bone quite like the first time, but it was still very good. The staff very kindly gave us an extra plate of ribs on our second visit too. Service was generally OK, but it was hard at times to get the attention of staff. The other tip I would give them is to bring the cold beer straight after ordering and not after all the juices have been made! The place is quite casual and more cafe style than fine-dining restaurant style, but it's all about the ribs here! The price was really reasonable, portions were good and I would definitely go back again!
